About this event

You will learn how to assist an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander adult who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence based action plan.

This two-day workshop is facilitated by WA Centre for Rural Health (WACRH) Associate Lecturer Annette McVicar who works in Aboriginal Community Engagement. Annette is a Mununjali and Minjungbal women from Yugambeh Country. Annette has extensive experience in Aboriginal Cultural Education and Training.

The training is open to community members and health service providers that work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The program has been well evaluated both in workplace and community settings and is found to be effective in improving mental health literacy, reducing stigma and increasing helping behaviours.

Light morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.

Cost: FREE

This training is being presented by Karratha Central Healthcare with funding support from the Australian Government Department of Health.
